Alpha to Feature New Material Set Combinations and Recycling Services at Toronto SMTA Expo & Tech Forum


Reading time ( words)

Alpha Assembly Solutions will feature its new material set combinations at the upcoming Toronto SMTA Expo and Tech Forum to be held June 7 at the Edward Village Markham, Ontario, Canada. 

The material set combinations include paste, tacky flux, cored wire, and wave soldering flux that are tested with one another to achieve greater reliability. "A great deal of trial and error can occur when selecting products for specific electronics assembly processes, and reliability is a critical issue for our customers," said Kurt Graulich, District Sales Manager. "Alpha has done the testing necessary to demonstrate which material pairings will produce the greatest reliability."

Alpha, a part of the MacDermid Performance Solutions group of businesses, will also showcase its portfolio of innovative materials and solutions for the electronics assembly industry, and its ALPHA Recycling Services capabilities.

"Alpha is committed to helping our customers by providing them with cost-efficient options to responsibly dispose of their solder dross and waste," said Harold Sneath, Eastern Regional Reclaim Manager for Alpha. "Our goal is to minimize a company’s environmental liability while maximizing the financial return for their reclamation efforts."

Stencil Printing Techniques for Challenging Heterogeneous Assembly Applications

04/16/2018 | Mark Whitmore and Jeff Schake, ASM Assembly Systems
A new generation of near microscopic size SMT chip capacitors has appeared in the market, known as either 0201 or 008004. This article investigates and characterizes the stencil printing process for compatibility with M0201 capacitor assembly. Effects of circuit board quality, stencil thickness, and stencil nano-coating are evaluated against solder paste volume transfer efficiency and raw-volume print distribution.
